Open Wireless

This place that I enjoy going (will remain nameless because of the nature of this article) has open wireless point. Now, it is open intentionally, however, everything is open; the access-point, the router admin… you get it.

Now I am not a black hat, white hat, or even a hat wearer of any-kind, but I brought this to the attention of the person that has legit access to the router’s admin panel some weeks ago and they didn’t do anything about it. So here I sit; having just typed in the default password into the router and I am staring at the admin panel wondering and just thinking about what to do.

Anyway, I changed the SSID to something a little more appropriate for this store. I hope this person locks down the router’s admin panel — for their own good.
